The Women in Building & Associated Services (WIBAS) group is calling for nominations for the Women in Building Recognition Award, as part of the Master Builders Excellence in Building Awards.
One of the nine awards presented, WIBAS President Sarah Parry-Jones of Earp Brothers says that being nominated for this Award is a great honour.
“It’s important that we recognise achievements within our industry, to inspire others and promote the Building and Construction industry as a great career path for women,” Sarah said.
“We all know women are doing great things in the Hunter region and the Women in Building Recognition Award offers an opportunity to celebrate these achievements in a public forum.”
“We are looking for women who are outstanding in their field; who pursue excellence and who contribute to their industry and community. There are plenty of worthy candidates in the Hunter but we need people to shed light on them and the work they do.”
One of the nine awards presented at the Master Builders Excellence in Building Awards, WIBAS is encouraging nominations that detail who the nominee is, their contact details, what they have achieved and why they should be recognised.
Nominations close 31 May 2015 and can be made via email.
The purpose of Women in Building & Associated Services (WIBAS) is to provide an environment where women can network with their colleagues, exchange ideas and experiences that will support and mentor the other women, whilst obtaining relevant, specialist industry specific information.
The group was initially created to represent women who work in the building industry or a related service to the industry. WIBAS is supported by the Master Builders Association, the leader in Australia's Building and Construction Industry for housing, commercial and infrastructure projects for over 130 years.
The Master Builders recognises and supports the enormous contribution women make to the building and construction industry and provides ongoing professional development through the WIBAS Forums.
